What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

WorldVenture in upper Guinea, West Africa is seeking to transform society through a multifaceted approach with a solid evangelism emphasis. Maninka are resistant to the gospel. The WorldVenture team believes that with exposure to the truth some will accept truth. Your opportunity is to intern in preparation to research methods of evangelism used in West Africa that touch a lot of people at once and then adapt and use those methods in Guinea to touch many with the gospel.

Requirements:
*Must be a US Citizen or US Permanent Resident.

Couple or single male. Solid, growing believer. Able to grow spiritually without lots of external input. Evangelistically oriented. Strong sense of God's call. Committed to long-term ministry. Able to get along well with people, build relationships and live with very limited Western contacts. Able to learn languages. Able to live in a primitive area. Able to teach. Flexible (able to adjust plans to fit needs and situation). Able to laugh at one's self. Appropriate Bible training and/or experience. Willing to participate in the Africa Internship Program (additional information available from missionary supervisor.)

Responsibilities:
Internship will prepare applicant to know or learn French and Maninka, culture and living in upper Guinea. Research broad and successful evangelism methods used in West Africa. Try/facilitate one or more. Train Guinean(s) to work with you. Be salt and light using broader outreach techniques to bring people to faith in Christ, strengthen believers and build the church. Come up with ways to use your skills to build society and the church that we can't think of. Participate in team prayer and worship times. Maintain support. Possible examples:

  • Creatively and broadly distribute gospel media in Maninka (CDs, on chips for cell phones, MP3 format etc.)
  • In Senegal one WorldVenture missionary held contests. Prizes ranged from bicycles to big French Dictionaries. To compete in the drawing for the top prizes people completed six simple correspondence courses. Many learned, some came to faith.

Language Needs: French and Maninka

Living Environment:
Kankan is a bustling town of over 250,000 that reflects a developing county. It is a great place for those with a sense of adventure, a love for people, and the desire to see God transform a whole region. The WorldVenture team in Upper Guinea desire to see Christ’s kingdom established in all facets of life – and have fun along the way. 2020 is an election year in Guinea, so interns should be aware of increased unrest in the county over the next year.

Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals

WorldVenture in upper Guinea is focusing on the over two million Maninka People of whom less than 150 are believers. The rest are a mix of a major religion and spirit worshipers. The considerable spiritual oppression to down right spiritual attack, remoteness, limited resources, slowness of the work and climate make this one of the highest areas of missionary attrition in the world. Yet there is a good working relationship among several missions praying and fellowshipping together including SIM, IMB, and Pioneer Bible Translators. WorldVenture believes that within this generation, we can transform this land and society. We are praying and working toward this goal. We invite committed, dedicated, evangelistically and long-term focused believers to join us.

This typically involves connecting by phone or Skype every few weeks to walk through basic pre-field ministry topics like raising support, safety, ministering cross-culturally ,etc. as well as providing prayer support and guidance through logistics. The intern's mentor will also setup a time to debrief and follow-up after their internship.

Mission Trip Offered By WorldVenture

Billions of people don’t know Jesus. We’re not okay with that.

More than words, they are a reminder on the wall of our main office of why we do what we do. Since 1943, God has used thousands of WorldVenture workers and partners to impact millions with the good news.
We plant churches, build clinics, educate children, train leaders, provide disaster relief, combat injustice, foster the arts, and serve the poor with economic development…in Jesus name and to make disciples.
We recruit, train, and send disciples of Jesus throughout the world who sense Gods call to give their lives to share the gospel with people who have yet to hear it. And we partner with multitudes of Christ-following disciples in engaging the world for gospel impact.
Join us!
